Missy Carver Boulton’s restaurant Missy’s Place 15th Hole Bar & Grill has weathered the coronavirus pandemic and emerged better than ever, despite county mandates regarding indoor dining, seating, social distancing, masks, takeout and related food shortages and price increases.
“We had just opened maybe just a month before everything crumbled,” she said. “To start we had to change our hours. But we made a business plan inside a plan. We just held on best as we could. To move forward we packed a lot of to-go meals for many folks. We even for a short while offered meat and produce for people that could not get to the stores. We were very fortunate to be where we are. So all and all, we were OK. We’ve made it through this. We’ll continue to go forward and grow.”
Missy’s Place 15th Hole Bar & Grill, 45525 Route 79 South, is located within the gates of the Rancho California RV Resort in Aguanga.
The restaurant is nestled on the banks of a pond with a spacious patio available for outdoor enjoyment. Inside, the open dining room features comfortable seating and beautiful views.
“We couldn’t have picked a better place to be really,” Boulton said.
Menu selections include pasta, Angus burgers, pork chops, meatloaf, fried chicken, fish and chips, liver and onions and more.
Boulton said she does a balancing act to keep her prices reasonable amid food shortage increases.
“We’ve seen a huge increase in meat in particular. We keep close contact with our meat supplier, and their guess is another six to eight weeks and the prices should stabilize,” she said.
The staff is helpful, professional and friendly, she said. Boulton’s husband Tracy frequently visits the dining area, greeting friends and making sure everyone is happy.
The menu offerings have expanded to include breakfast and barbecue on the weekends with prime rib served at market price Saturday evenings. The food is getting positive reviews on social media and Yelp.
Getting to Missy’s Place 15th Hole Bar & Grill can be somewhat of a challenge to the uninitiated. The RV resort has an entrance on Route 79 South, just south of the Highway 371 junction. The paved drive winds along the hillside and comes into the resort through a low-water crossing. To enter the restaurant, diners must first stop at the guard shack at the community’s gates. The attendant will direct them to the correct building, which is just past the gates on the left.
Missy’s 15th Hole Bar & Grill’s hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. all week.
